Here is the latest video from Auto Motor Und Sport of the BMW F20 1-series hatchback in winter testing. It has been a while since we last saw a spy video of the new upcoming 1-series 5-door hatch. The 5 and 3-door variants are due as a 2011 model and will sport the familiar 4-6cyl variants which range from anywhere between 115-265hp. Previous spy videos: HERE and HERE.

With the release of the all new 2011 BMW X5 LCI came news of a newly introduced M Sport package for the X5. Details have since come out about the package, but pictures have remained elusive BMW has put up an official picture of the car up on its own website, but only that single photo in a very small size has been released thus far. Thankfully, its only taken about 24 hours for these … CONTINUED
Here are some new higher resolution pictures of the very same BMW M1 mule that has been spotted before. We can clearly see the temporary rear wheel arches affixed to accomodate the testing of a wider track. The production M1 body will sport actual broader flared arches to fit the widened rear track.
Well, there is no end to the photoshops of the upcoming M5 that have been bubbling to the surface. The general notion is that the cars line will follow the E90/E92 M3 front bumper however it will be significantly more angular (think X5/X6 M) and obviously wider to fill out the larger 5-Series based body
We bring you the most revealing photos yet of the next generation 6-series convertible (F13). Compared to the previous sightings, the car seen here reveals more details. For the first time we are seeing the front kidney grill outlines and outlines of the headlights and tail lights.
The F13 6-series will be a folding hardtop convertible (the cloth covering the hardtop is a decoy) and is expected to debut late this year for a possible premiere at the Geneva Autoshow in … CONTINUED
The F20 1-series 5-door hatchback continues its winter cold weather testing in Arjeplog, a town in Northern Sweden. The new 5-door hatch 1-series is expected debut sometime next year.
We recently brought you photos of the F30 3-series during winter testing, and here is a video of an F30 out making its round in the snow and cold. Seeing it in motion and from different distances really gives a great perspective into its shape and proportions (which looks great). The little bit of exhaust note we can hear also sounds pretty aggressive.

Here is the latest artistic impression of the F30 from Germanys AutoBild magazine. As you can see this impression is highly BMW CS Concept car influenced.
After looking at these pictures, Scott26 had this to say:
That broken rear shoulder line actually has its roots in BMW history too most recently it was revived on the CS Concept Car. … CONTINUED
For 2011, along with the standard 3-series, BMW is going to be updating the M3 Coupe and Convertible as well. The most obvious different is the inclusion of the new LED tailights to the M3 while leaving the current design on the front of the car alone. IMO this is the perfect combination (hopefully a retrofit wont be too difficult).
Other changes which are not so obvious in these pictures are interior changes such as little updates on the trim pieces … CONTINUED
BMW has already confirmed that the BMW X3 (F25) will be all new for 2011. Additionally, production is to be moved to South Carolina in the newly expanded plant alongside the other X vehicles.
The car itself is built upon a shared platform with the next generation 3-series (F30) and since the X3 will be released before the next generation 3-series it will actually serve as a preview for the 3-series.
Benefiting from the 3-series lineage, the … CONTINUED
